The Best FREE Photo Editing Apps

Numerous bloggers, YouTubers, and Instagrammers alike will share a list of their favorite photo editing apps, and many of them cost. For beginners and people who don’t feel the need to spend $5 on a phone app, there is something out there for you.

Photoquilt – This is the app that I use to create collages for Instagram or my blog. You can use as little as 1-2 pictures, and each collage is the perfect size for posting to Instagram without cropping.

Typorama – This is my current go-to app to add text to images, or to create headers. They have a wide range of text styles, backgrounds, and you can resize the picture based on the platform you will be sharing the image on. My only issue with this app is that it automatically adds typoramas watermark to each picture — to solve this issue I will simply crop it out in my photos.

Over – Over is so dope and innovative when it comes to editing and creating images. On this app, you will choose a picture or background, then you can layer other pictures over the background. Once you do that you can add text, shapes and other cool things to enhance the
